The Yeats Design Residency is an annual partnership with IT Sligo, which gives graduates in Theatre Design from IT Sligo’s BA in Performing Arts a six-month residency at the Abbey Theatre.

The Resident Assistant Designer works alongside designers, directors, production staff and creative teams on a range of productions on the Abbey and Peacock stages, gaining insight into stage management, production, lighting and sound.

The BA (Hons) in Performing Arts at IT Sligo is the only full-time degree programme which specialises in theatre design in Ireland.

We look forward to working with Kirsty and Robert over the coming months!
